, in large part, by obama not condemning israel's settlements, the building of houses on land long held by palestinians. families like the gharibs. today, their house is an island, this is how over the past 30 years, a nearby israeli settlement has grown, swallowing up almost half their land. the rest cut off by a security fence. "it's like we're in a prison," says mahmoud gharib. "we have cameras, gates, fences and walls." so, why do you stay? "this is my homeland. this is my house," he says. "the israelis are stealing the land day and night." reaching parts of their land requires a special permit. they're just explaining that this whole hillside below the settlement is their land and it's full of olive trees and in order to get over there to pick the olives, they need permission from the israeli military to get through these gates and cross this road. the israelis see it differently. arguing that jews were here on this very land thousands of years ago. do you understand why this family is angry that much of their land was taken? >> no. >> reporter: you don't see it that way? >> no. >>

: after president obama concluded the law is unconstitutional, house republicans entered the case to defend doma. >> thanks to pete williams who will join our coverage tomorrow and wednesday, if the high court strikes down doma, that would not automatically require states to permit same-sex marriage but the ruling could be a game changer for what all states are allowed to do. let's spin. jonathan capehart, friend of the show hark as piece out in the "washington post" today where he says, i don't think lgbt american fully appreciate how ten with us thing are on the court right now. he is very cautious. in factoring argues that the shift in social acceptance of gay marriage recently might actually give the supreme court reason to believe it does not need to action on doma or prop 8 because the democratic process is moving so quickly. i think that is an interesting and a fair point. for the years that i've been covering the gay rights movement, it has insisted often prematurely that public opinion, social science, moral authority, et cetera, was already with them. that the country ha

the aisle, president obama and the senate, to commit to the same commonsense goal. the 2014 house republican budget sets a responsible precedent by ensuring our government lived within its means. just like millions of americans across this country, just like my constituents back in north carolina. i hear from them every day and they ask me why can't the federal budget be balanced. why can't washington get its spending under control. this proposal sets real, practical goals that will stop spending money we don't have, fix a broken tax code, protects and strengthens important priorities like medicare and national security, reforms welfare programs like medicaid, so it can deliver on the promises to deliver to those who are in most need. it also does repeal the president's health care plan. and it puts in place and allows aos put in place real sensible patient-centered reforl for health care. the house republican budget reduces the deficit by $4.6 trillion over the next 10 years. this budget offers a plan to expand opportunity and create jobs. while not sufficient by themselves, policy reforms
would not be signed by president obama, would not pass the senate, burt it will pass the house. >> shepard: mike, thank you. meantime, something about our economy does not add up. we all know that. the latest government numbers show consumers spending grew at a strong pace. that's great because consumer spending counts for 70% of the total economic activity. here's the weird part. we're not seeing the expected comparable rise in our paychecks. we're spending more but no making more, and we're not spending more on credit cards. in fact the expert said the payroll tax hike would slow spending. it did not. so what is this? and rick suggests that more americans are taking advantage of the underground economy, earning and spending cash off the books to avoid taxes or other regulations. rich is with us know. the chief been the correspondent for u.s. news and world report. at it the worst kept secret in the nation there is an enormous underground economy where people get paid cash and don't get benefits. it's a cash world. >> some of that is a constant. we know about landscape workers
: if you look at this, could president obama reinstate white house tours if he wanted to? 63% say, yes he could. >> of course he could. martha, there's no question he could. okay, here's $380 million i got you right there. martha: that's my point. >> strike that. the other point in this, in my office budget, martha, last year i gave back 21% of my budget. are you delling me the white house can't find funds within its budget to allow schoolchildren to see the white house? it is really ridiculous when you think about it, that they can't find funds within their existing budget. i know they could if they tried. martha: we also talked about the overlapping agencies. i played yesterday a sound bite of the president in his own state of the union address talking about how three different agencies dealt with salmon. and we looked it up to try to figure out if that was still happening and it is still happening. in many of the case he cited those agencies have grown in their responsibilities, not been cut. what can be done about all of the overlap and redundancy? >> here's what can be done. since i'
a bigger white house budget than barack obama does. this is a trivial pursuit. and michele bachmann made a mistake pursuing it. >> he says bachmann is playing small ball with the president and can't backup her criticism. >>> to the politics behind the gun control debate. democrats in the senate have decided not to put a ban on assault weapons in their proposed gun control bill, that's because it's not likely to pass. they're putting more of their efforts into required background checks. vice president joe biden says he's not giving up the fight. >> this is not about anybody's constitutional right to own a weapon. for all those who say we shouldn't and can't ban assault weapons, for all those who say the politics is too hard, how can they say that? when you take a look at those 20 beautiful babies and what happened to them and those six teachers and administrators. >> gloria borger joining me now from washington. gloria, what's going on behind the scenes on capitol hill with these gun measures? >> well, if a ban on assault weapons were easy to get, they would have renewed it when it expir
years and trims $875 billion in spending. but it slashes much less than the budget passed by the house. the next fiscal battle is anticipated in july when president obama will likely ask congress for increased borrowing power. >>> there is a meeting between pope francis and his predecessor today. the new pope met pope emeritus benedict. benedict has been living at the papal summer palace since retiring last month. the vatican says benedict gave pope francis a pledge of obedience. observers say there's to show there is no power struggle inside the catholic church. the two prayed together and then they had a private meeting and lunch. >>> president obama has just arrived back in washington tonight from a four-day trip to the mid-east. the president got a chance to be a tourist at the an sent city of pitra in jordan. this is the most popular tourist attraction in jordan. president obama made his first visit to israel on this trip. >>> cities around the bay area had mark earth hour by dimming lights on public buildings in two hours. it begins at 8:30 tonight. the bay bridge as you can see
to the white house where president obama is making an announcement, expected to nominate the next cabinet secretary. straight to the press room. >> thank you. everybody have a seat. have a seat. as i've said before, my top priority as president is doing everything we need to do to make sure that we're growing our economy and that we're strengthening our middle class. as i said in my state of the union address last month, every day we should be asking ourselves three questions. one, how do we make sure america is a magnet for good jobs. number two, how do we equip people with the skills they need to get those jobs? and number three, how do we make sure that hard work actually pays off in a decent living? these are the challenges that i've been instructed my team here at the white house and in my entire cabinet to focus on. and a position that's instrumental to tackling these challenges is having an outstanding secretary of labor. so i want to begin by thanking hilda solice and her entire team. including acting secretary seth harris. for the outstanding work they've been doing over the past
said that the white house is a reality show. this is a woman via mark burnett did her own reality show and she accused barack obama of having a reality show. >> she's got a tart approach and she gives a good show, reality or not reality. but i don't think she's a serious political factor in the republican party. and i have to say if i was going it take political advice from someone in that spat, it would be from karl rove and not from sarah palin. >> thank you very much. ruth marcus, i can't see you -- taking advice from either one. but to be continued. and meanwhile, the blame game, the republican party chairman, raince priebus took a thinly veiled shot at his predecessor in trying to explain what went wrong for the gop. >> for quite a while when we walked into the inc, both credit cards of the rnc were suspended. this is before i walked in. now just think about this for a second. if you got one of two of the biggest national political parties in the world, that has both credit cards suspended. >> are you saying that former chairman steele ruined the party or at least the rnc financia

to other staffing. there was no influx of excessive staffing when president obama came to the white house. and the dog walker she mentions is in reality the white house groundskeeper. cnn's dana bash attempted to follow up with bachmann about what he had said. the as a result, both women out of breath and a dramatic shift in topic. >> what i want to ask you about is the fact that you talked about the excesses that he's engaged in, the fact that he has a dog walker which is not true. >> the big point of my speech was about benghazi. this was an absolute disaster. >> you also made specific accusations about the president spending money that other presidents also made. >> the real issue is there are four americans that are dead. the secretary of state was not in conversation with a secretary of defense or with the chair of the joint chiefs of staff. >> i think that's an important point. if you want to focus on that -- >> that's it. that's what's important. do you want to talk about dog handlers and there's four americans killed? >> congresswoman, you're the one who put it up. >> of course, t
obama and speaker of the house, john boehner, both in denial or are they drinking the same stuff? >> i think it's important to recognize is that we've already cut 2.5, 2.7 trillion dollars out of the deficit. if the sequester stays in you've got over 3 1/2 trillion dollars of deficit reduction already so we don't have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. in fact for the next ten years it's in sustainable place. >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis, but we all know we have one looming. >> greta: turns out a majority of americans disagree with the president and the speaker of the house. a new poll showing, a fox poll, that 68% of americans describe the national debt as an immediate problem. only 27% say the debt can be handled in the future. mayor, what do you think? the speaker and the president don't think it's an immediate problem? >> i think the american people are far better economists than the people in washington. the reality we do have a serious debt problem. it's been accumulating now for four or five years. under obama it's been accumulating at massive amounts and there'
president obama's departure to israel yesterday. the white house has yet to verify the claims but lawmakers are increasingly calling for action. here's what president obama said earlier today in a joint press conference with israeli prime minister netanyahu. >> with respect to chemical weapons, we intend to investigate thoroughly exactly what happened. obviously, in syria right now, you've got a war zone. you have information that's filtered out. but we have to make sure that we know exactly what happened, what was nature of the incident, what can we document, what can we prove. i've instructed me teams to work closely with all other countries in the region, and international organizations, and institutions to find out precisely whether or not this red line was crossed. i will note without at this point having all the facts before me, that we know the syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapon attacks. we know that there are those there the syrian government who have compressed a willingness to use-- expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necessary, to prote
obama's visit to israel. it is obvious that the stock for the president is all about pressing flesh and renewing relationships. >> ahead of the visit, the white house played down hopes of a renewed middle east peace process getting under way and signalled clearly that no major breakthroughs should be expected. so far, obama and israeli president benjamin netanyahu have been doing their best to put personal disagreements behind them. >> we look now at where israel and the u.s. stand today and with this visit could possibly take those ties. >> this is it is more of a symbolic gesture and less about the specifics of a peace plan. barack obama's aimed to build back a little warm in relations with israel. >> we've spent more time together, working together than i have with any leader, and this speaks to the closeness of our two nations. [applause] >> the alliance between the united states and israel is considered sacrosanct and has a long tradition. it dates back to 1967, during the six-day war. israeli forces took control of the west bank and the gaza strip. washington's pro-israeli pol
that obama has taken his offensive charm -- sorry, charm offensive to israel, where depending on what you read, it seems to be bombing. >> greta: we're back with former speaker of the house, newt gingrich. mr. speaker, your thoughts about the president's trip to israel? >> well, i think this is a president who has made shallowness an art form. he drifts across the land, pleasant, nothing changes, and he leaves. he couldn't even contain himself long enough to get out of israel. the fact is that there is no undertow of isolation. there's a long-term systemic effort to isolate israel. there's a deep historic tradition of anti-semitism in much of europe. much of the arab world is deeply committed to the destruction of israel. this president and secretary of state cannot even get the new egyptian president to say he's committed to the camp david accords. so, i think that to blame the israelis for being isolated at a time when they have missiles at them from gaza. they have chemical weapons in syria. they have hezbollah in their north. they have iran trying to build a nuclear weapon to eliminat
process in the middle east. so i think white house officials are feeling good about the trip. the big question, if you talk to experts in the region, is what is president obama going to do now to try to restart peace talks? of course, secretary of state kerry is really taking the lead on that. to what extent will president obama engage in that and get involved? that's what experts around the region will be watching. overall, they believe it's a success. alex? >> something else that could be deemed successful, the first budget in four years after the all nighter friday into saturday, what's the reaction there at the white house? >> final votes came in at 5:00 a.m. the white house thinks it's a good thing, that bill that passed through the senate really echos what president obama would like to see in terms of deficit reduction but the problem, of course, is when you match up is the senate bill with the house bill. the senate bill calls for deficit reduction through increasing taxes and spending cuts and, of course, the house bill calls for steep cuts in balancing the budget within ten y
